Biohacking is essentially the practice of changing our chemistry and our physiology through science to enhance the body. The term is broad as it is an ever-evolving concept which includes lifestyle and nutrition changes to boost your mental and physical performance as well as treatments such as red light therapy, or the use of ‘health wearables’ such as sleep trackers or fitness watches like the FitBit.
When it comes to nutrition, reducing carbohydrates and sugar, eating more healthy fats and adding more superfoods into your meal plans is a great way to start biohacking. Our expert nutritionists can work with you to create a meal plan that suits your individual needs. As well as what we eat, new research shows that when we eat can also play a role in optimising health. This is why intermittent fasting has become so popular. When your body is allowed to rest you experience a number of benefits as you increase your levels of growth hormones which boost your metabolic rate, lower your blood sugar and burn fat quicker.
Eating well and exercising are a great start but adding supplements is another great way of biohacking and you can improve your focus, energy levels, and more with bioavailable forms of nutrients.
Mindset is another area where we can biohack to optimise our lives, especially given the current stressful times we live in. Learning meditation and breathing techniques can be a brilliant way of taking time to slow down and being grateful for what we have by setting an intention. Changing your mindset comes with time and practice. You need to consistently refocus your brain to see the positive in every situation until it becomes second nature.
